The Ultimate Guide to Leather Type – How to Choose Your Perfect Leather Bag

Nappa Leather

Nappa leather is a highly sought-after material known for its exceptional softness and supple texture. It is typically derived from the skins of calves, sheep, or goats, and undergoes a chrome tanning process that preserves the natural grain and open pores of the leather.

The use of Nappa leather is prevalent across a wide range of luxury products, including clothing, bags, gloves, car interiors, furniture, and even lightweight footwear. Its refined and natural surface finish makes it an ideal choice for items that will be in close contact with the user, as it provides a comfortable and luxurious feel without being overly exposed to heavy wear and tear.

Mi Bolsa Nappa Leather Bags – we utilise Nappa leather extensively in our collections. The iconic London collection, Honora collection, Seoul collection, and La Cesta collections are all crafted from this luxurious leather.

Swift Leather

Swift Leather, a superior calfskin that exudes refinement and sophistication. Crafted with a fine grain and a supple, yielding texture, this exceptional leather offers an extensive range of opulent hues that few others can match.

Lightweight and slouchy, Swift Leather is an excellent choice for petite bag designs, providing a unique look while maintaining the structure of the piece. The semi-smooth surface and soft shine create a luxurious aesthetic, while the leather's ability to absorb dyes with ease results in vibrant, bold hues.

Though the leather may develop light scratches over time, these can be easily removed with a gentle buffing, ensuring your Swift Leather accessory retains its impeccable appearance. Discover the difference of premium quality with Swift Leather, as exemplified in Mi Bolsa's limited edition "La Niña" bag, a testament to its unparalleled craftsmanship and timeless elegance.


Togo Leather

Togo leather is the epitome of strength, durability and sophistication. Crafted from premium calfskin, this material boasts a pebbled texture that is both visually striking and remarkably smooth to the touch. The large grain of the leather lends it an unparalleled resilience, making it impervious to scratches and capable of withstanding the demands of daily use, whether at the office or during outdoor pursuits.

Togo's moisture-repelling properties and matte finish further enhance its versatility, allowing it to seamlessly transition between professional and casual environments. The subtle, yet captivating patterning adds a touch of understated elegance, making Togo the preferred choice for many luxury bags brands.

Mi Bolsa Togo Leather Bags – One of our favorite choices of leather, our Cotswold collection, Madrid collection, Wharf collection and Carnaby collections are all made of Premium Togo leather from sustainable leather tanneries.
